Bio

Hull City’s leading scorer for the past two seasons, Jarrod Bowen has quickly become one of the most feared attacking players in the Championship.

15 goals in 2017/18 was an impressive return from a first full season of senior football and, although he got off to a slow start in 18/19, Bowen went on to become the first Hull City player to hit 20 goals in a single season since Stuart Elliott netted 29 times in 2004/05.

Like Elliott, Bowen’s goal-scoring instinct comes from operating in a predominantly wide position and the Tigers were quick to spot his talents when he broke into Hereford United’s first team as a teenager. Some impressive performances in the Bulls’ youth team earned him his opportunity and in March 2014 he made his first team debut in a National League fixture against Barnet. His first goal came as a 17-year-old in a 3-2 victory over Alfreton Town and eight appearances before the end of the 2013/14 season were enough to persuade the Tigers to make their move.

Bowen arrived at the KCOM Stadium in the summer of 2014 to join the Club’s development squad and spent a couple of seasons impressing for the U23 side before being given his opportunity in the first team set-up ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League campaign.

Injuries meant that he was one of a number of youngsters offered a chance to train with the senior squad in pre-season and he made his mark with goals in friendlies against Mansfield Town and Barnsley. He was rewarded with a first competitive outing in the Tigers’ League Cup victory over Exeter City, and a first Premier League appearance followed in October 2016 when he came on to replace Markus Henriksen in a 1-0 defeat at Watford. He made a further six top flight outings before the end of the campaign as he put himself in the frame for a more regular role as the Club prepared for life back in the Championship.

Bowen was in from the start as the Tigers kicked off the 2017/18 season away at Aston Villa and it was a day that brought his first goal in a black and amber shirt as his second half strike earned a point in a 1-1 draw. He was into double figures by the turn of the year, by which time he had signed a new contract with the Club, and his goals were a major factor in a much-improved mid-table finish in 2018/19.
